The Hole

“I guess... this is goodbye my dear friend”,

“I guess... this is goodbye my dear friend”, Perhaps for now, but not forever.

The hole reaches to places the eye doesn’t dare,

The hole reaches to places the eye doesn’t dare, Down into the soul of the earth,

The hole reaches to places the eye doesn’t dare, Down into the soul of the earth, It’s too dark for clarity, imagine

The hole reaches to places the eye doesn’t dare, Down into the soul of the earth, It’s too dark for clarity, imagine A journey that terrifies even light.

It’s a journey my friend isn’t willing to make,

It’s a journey my friend isn’t willing to make, But the only other option is worse -

It’s a journey my friend isn’t willing to make, But the only other option is worse - I’d say... to remain here?

It’s a journey my friend isn’t willing to make, But the only other option is worse - I’d say... to remain here? Look around us, we must enter the hole.

My friend looks around,

My friend looks around, My eyes remain closed but my sight clear,

My friend looks around, My eyes remain closed but my sight clear, Two hearts singing very different songs -

My friend looks around, My eyes remain closed but my sight clear, Two hearts singing very different songs - One a beat of faith, the other a cry of despair.

And it’s no wonder,

And it’s no wonder, My friend sees nothing but black skies,

And it’s no wonder, My friend sees nothing but black skies, Thick smoke following ravenous flames -

And it’s no wonder, My friend sees nothing but black skies, Thick smoke following ravenous flames - What is a world where green grows no more?

But it is a wonder,

But it is a wonder, My friend wants to stay, believing they

But it is a wonder, My friend wants to stay, believing they Can unite flame and glory -

But it is a wonder, My friend wants to stay, believing they Can unite flame and glory - A wilful blindness to the open gates of hell.

We must leap, I say,

We must leap, I say, If you are to remain blind, then close your eyes,

We must leap, I say, If you are to remain blind, then close your eyes, Take my hand, let us traverse

We must leap, I say, If you are to remain blind, then close your eyes, Take my hand, let us traverse Not into hell, but a world known to neither.

The eyes can’t seek what hasn’t been seen,

The eyes can’t seek what hasn’t been seen, But the heart may fall for a destination we have not yet been -

The eyes can’t seek what hasn’t been seen, But the heart may fall for a destination we have not yet been - I won’t paint us red while I still dream of green.

Our hands tighten in unison, Are you ready?

Our hands tighten in unison, Are you ready? - “No”.

The fire light dims as we jump down the hole.

Thanks for reading :)
